Arian Foster Leaves Day 2 Of Texans Training Camp Favoring Hamstring, Back

Arian Foster pulled himself out of the second day of Texans training camp on Sunday, favoring his left hamstring and lower back.

Foster, 27, pulled up during a group session, walked over to a team trainer and began grasping for and working on his leg and back.

He tested it later, re-entering the session, taking one rep and going full speed, but pulled himself out after and didn’t return.

In Foster’s absence, newcomer Andre Brown took the bulk of the first-team reps, with Dennis Johnson, Toben Opurum and rookie Alfred Blue handling the rest.

Head coach Bill O’Brien avoided a question after practice on the health of his three-time Pro Bowler.

“As far as I know (he’s OK),” he said.

Foster has dealt with hamstring issues throughout his career, missing 8 games last season and time during the 2011 preseason. You might remember the latter as the time Foster tweeted out a picture of an MRI indicating he had a hamstring strain.

The six-year NFL veteran underwent offseason back surgery to try to prevent any future problems.

So far, not so good.
